(open to the public)

“Pseudomorphs”   by  Dr. Howard Heitner.    The word pseudomorph comes from Greek, meaning “false form”.   It refers to a mineral taking the crystal shape of another mineral.  The gemstone tigereye is a pseudomorph of quartz after fibrous asbestos.   Pseudomorphs are not common and are often sought after by collectors.    Many theories have been presented on how they form, by different mineralogists.   Actual samples from the author’s collection will be shown.
